A Rumble in Wales

Yesterday, about half an hour after this photo was taken, an earthquake rumbled across Wales – the house shook for about 10 seconds – very disconcerting! Thankfully, by that time Chris was safely back on the ground.

Its been a busy but very enjoyable weekend and yesterday, once the hedges (and the apple tree) were pruned, we drove across to Tresaith where there was a low tide.



This is a very interesting beach when the tide is so far out, with a fantastic waterfall cascading down onto the sand and rocks and many rock pools with a plethora of multi coloured flora



I can’t resist sharing this great picture of Ollie, who had a wonderful time racing around and climbing on the rocks – but as usual would not put his feet in the sea!

Today, I visited the Llandysul Gardening Weekend, an annual community event organised by Farmyard Nurseries ( farmyardnurseries.co.uk ) and the local community. As well as a good choice of plants, crafts and refreshments, a range of speakers shared their expertise with visitors to the event. I attended a talk by Joseph Atkin, head gardener at Aberglasney Gardens, ‘The Woody Plant Collection at Aberglasney’. This was an hour very well spent and undoubtedly a most informative and interesting gardening talk. I’ve certainly taken away several ideas for both gardens – can’t wait to tell Chris!
